Homestay Program: learning Spanish while living with your teacher
This course consists of living and learning Spanish at your teacher’s home, which means being taught and corrected not only during class but at all times. The teacher and his/her family devote exclusive time to the difficulties and problems of an individual student, unless he/she chooses the two-student option. In this case, both students will be from different countries, so that they will not be able to speak to each other in their mother tongue. Leisure activities, such as chatting over a meal, family visits and social life are all carried out in Spanish. If the student has chosen the two-student-option and there is not a second student available, the fees will remain the same but the class time is reduced from 15 to 10 and from 20 to 12 ½ lessons a week, thus becoming private lessons. You can start your special courses on any day of the year (except public holidays) and the duration of the course is from one week onwards. These special courses are suited for students of all ages and levels.
